Cutting the Cheese for Reducing Sodium in the Daily Diet

If you're a lover of cheese, then it's unfortunate that it contains a plethora of salt. One ounce of American contains 450 mg's while a selection of Cheddar - about 175 mg's.

But wait! There is another type that is also hefty where sodium is concerned - cottage cheese. It's so creamy, so delicious, but have you ever noticed how salty that it tastes?

While these amounts would be fine otherwise - these foods tend to be coupled with other foods that are extreme in salt content.

Cheese is often served with lunch meats - also excessive where the old shaker is concerned.

And when luncheon meats aren't on the menu, generally saltine or snack crackers are served.

On that note, let's review the amount contained in other common dairy food group foods.
